Health officials report 2 more serious opioid overdoses

Emergency responders in Bend are now carrying extra doses of anti-overdose drug.

Two more people suffered serious opioid overdoses since Deschutes County health officials warned last week that a cluster of them may be tied to a particularly strong type of opioid.

Emergency responders are so alarmed by the situation that they are now carrying extra doses of the anti-overdose drug naloxone.
